Day 3: Art Resolutions-Georgia inspired flower works

imageThere is ample evidence that beauty can be found in the mundane, decrepit, and rundown. But I was nit inspired enough to invest my time sketching the waiting room of my auto repair place. Not even the shiny curves of chrome rims could tempt me. Instead I traveled back to the O’Keefe exhibition and tried to draw flowers as I remembered them and miniature studies abstracting them into designs. The abstracted morning glories came first then the peonies, then morning glories reduced to a geometric border and finally a sprawling nasturtium with emphasis on the pencil pattern in the negative spaces.

    I did my black and white photo challenge for Monday. Today, I spend my time in the studio applying painter’s tape to a abstract piece of work. The tape is layer three of what will probably be many, many layers.
    I love the challenge but a daily committment for me is just to much so I adapted it to once a week and a study in black and white with my camera.
    I’m rather partial to your abstract morning glories. :)Bea
